District Budget and Financial Reports


Annual Budget development follows the timeline below. Funding is available from a variety of sources: local, county and state entities, federal grants, private citizens, and bonds and overrides (breakdown of the Funding Sources).

Budget related documents (in Excel format) are uploaded to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) website for public view. Not everyone has the means to download and view an Excel spreadsheet file, so we have also made a variety of financial reports available as PDF files that can be found in the Documents section of this page. If you would like to view our financial reports online, you may do so by visiting the ADE School Finance site.

A written record of expenditures, disbursements or completed transactions is provided to the Governing Board in a monthly voucher report. These reports can be found in the Documents section of this page.
